Welcome to Communicating Care, a podcast of the Just Transition Collaborative at the University of Colorado Boulder where we talk about the ways environmental and climate justice advocacy are motivated by, express, and foster care. On this podcast we listen more deeply to people who have made headlines for making a difference to learn from their insights for successful creative climate communication and behavior change.
I'm the host, Professor Phaedra Pezzullo and, today, our guest is Dr. Stacy Alaimo, a Professor of English and Core Faculty Member of Environmental Studies at the University of Oregon. She is the author of three books and multiple coedited volumes and essays. She also is the coeditor of a new book series, Elements, for Duke University Press. Globally recognized as a leading scholar on gender, sexuality, and the environment, I am excited to talk with her today about her research on plastics, gender, and ocean life.
